  1. Calvert Cliffs Calendar

    So i mentioned I was going to do a Calvert Cliffs Annual calendar to highlight my best finds from each month. Well I took all the pics and sent it off to the printer they will be ready in a week. This way when i'm too old and senile to hunt anymore I will be able to flip through the old calendars to remember when things were found. So without further ado here is the first of many years to come!! JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL MAY JUNE JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER COVER
  2. Hello everyone! I took my girlfriend on her first Fossil hunting adventure today and she is hooked! It started off very slow but she picked up a few little teeth then we ate lunch. Soon, we bagan to find the teeth we went all the way there for. We used waiders and walked down the beach, and she picked up a tooth and said “what’s this?” It was a fragment of a small megalodon tooth!!! I couldn’t believe it. What a great trip. Thanks for viewing. Below are our finds!
  3. What kind of tooth is this?

    Hello everyone! It is me again and I would like to request a little more help with shark tooth ID. I found this tooth in the Calvert cliffs area. Also, it has rather fine serrations if this helps. Thanks for the help!
  4. So it is getting close to the end of the year and like most people towards the end of the year I like to reflect on my fossil trips. Ok maybe not like most people but you get the point. Well i was sorting through the pics from all my "meg" finds this year and i realized something I had found at least one meg every month of the year except for December, so I decided I was going to give it my all to try to find a meg in december so that i could say i had found one every month and i could make a calendar. Well yesterday despite the wind and big waves the fossil gods smiled down on me and allowed me to bring one home and complete my mission. Now i know people brag about the accomplishment from the past year well this is mine lol. I dont have kids or get married or anything like that so i have to go with fossils lol and for those of you who hunt Calvert Cliffs you know how hard it is to find megs around in the summer. Well Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas hope you enjoy the look back! January February March April May June July August September October November December
  5. Brownie's Beach 11/25/17

    After some careful thought and many references to suggestions from TFF members, I decided that my first fossil site would be Bayfront Park aka Brownie’s Beach in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. I packed up my newly bought expedition gear, sifter and all, and headed out. It was a little over an hour’s drive, which is not bad at all if you ask me. It was the day after Black Friday, so I had thought maybe everyone would just want to stay at home. But given it was a weekend, and families were in town for Thanksgiving and looking for something fun to do, my timing ended up not being ideal. When I showed up, the place was pretty busy, but I started collecting right away. There were quite a few other collectors, and in talking to them I learned that small teeth were a common find here, and in very large quantities. I actually didn’t find anything for a while, due to a number of things. The conditions were mediocre, considering how crowded it was and how the beach was riddled with those pesky autumn leaves that make combing the tide lines a real pain. Also, I was able to be at the park during low tide, but I would hardly call it that, as the water barely retreated at all. Must’ve just been the wind direction. But regardless of the imperfect circumstances, I was able to get a nice handful of small fossilized shark chompers and ray plates. My largest tooth, although still small, was actually the first one I found! A decent Physogaleus contortus I believe. Unlike the other teeth, I didn’t even have to sift for that one. Just found it chilling among some pebbles on the sand bank near the entrance of the park. The second I saw it I went “Ooh! That’s a tiger” and gladly picked up my first ever fossil. It will always hold a special place in my heart, even if it’s not the best find. Aside from my tiger, I found a bunch of Lemons, some real nice baby Sand Tigers, and I think some small Dusky. Again, I'm new so please correct my identifications. I also got my hands on some ray plates, and (although I had no idea what it was when I picked it up) a dolphin/porpoise tooth! I’m not quite sure what the black object next to it is, but I believe it to be something like a snail shell. If anyone has any clue what it is, let me know! Overall, I’d say I had a good first fossil hunting trip at a really beautiful site and I got to meet some nice people who share my passion. I got some cool finds and I can’t wait to hunt some more. I won’t let the small teeth scare me away from Brownie’s; I definitely plan on returning in better conditions to get some bigger, better finds. I actually plan on going in the winter, not too long from now! Hope you enjoy the trip report. Hoppe fossil hunting!

  9. Serrated Cusp Shark Tooth ID help

    Hello all! I have another fragment I need help identifying. I know that fragments generally are super hard to get a positive Id, but I feel this one is different. It is serrated and has a cusp. I found it at Brownies beach Calvert Cliffs MD USA
  10. Shark Tooth Feeding Damage?

    I found this bronze whaler with odd looking tip damage. Is this ancient feeding damage or a more modern break? Thanks!
  11. It was supposed to be a beautiful day today so i got up at 5am and hit the beach. I was treated to a stellar chubutensis before the sun came up then a gorgeous sunrise it was a fantastic beach day. Plus a couple of my other recent trips. We are finally getting towards prime hunting season in maryland bring on winter.
  12. Angel Shark Teeth!

    Angel Shark teeth are among my favorite fossil teeth. Pictured are the teeth of Squatina Subserrata and Squatina prima. show your angel shark teeth below!
  13. I brought home a limb of matrix that had fallen out of the cliff the other week. It dried out and chunks started falling off, revealing a teardrop-shaped shell and a pair of scallops. I carved through it, gluing the heck out of the tear-drop shaped shell the keep it from crumbling, and working all the way around the exposed shells so as not to break them. I found maybe a dozen 1/2-inch or smaller molds and lots of paper-thin bits of broken shell. When I finally dug out the exposed shells, I realized what the rest was-- broken bits of Isognomon maxillata, baby ones, a whole bed of them! I talked to my friend at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, who was also intrigued. He's going to take the remaining lump and examine it carefully under the dissecting scope to see what else might be in there. Lots of things predated the oysters, so could be some interesting micros in there!
  14. Well i went out on the Pax today and the mud that has been covering the beach from the high tides a couple weeks ago is finally almost gone. I got to look at some material that has been buried under all that mud and came away with a 2" mako that as you can see was trying its best to hide from me and a bunch of other teeth too all in all not a bad trip!
  15. Hello again! I was just wondering if this tooth is a Carcharodon Hastalis Tooth. I found it at Brownie’s Beach as I was combing the beach. Thanks for the help.
  16. Hello all! I found these on a recent trip to Brownies beach. I am not completely sure but I have an idea of what these may be. Can I have your opinions? Thanks!
  17. Hey guys! I took my second trip to Brownies beach! I found 180 shark teeth, a porpoise tooth, an almost complete ecphora, and some type of land mammal tooth. Also, if anyone can help me identify the land mammal tooth while you’re here that would be awesome. Here are my favorite finds.
  18. Carcharocles chubutensis

    Here are two gorgeous Carcharocles chubutensis teeth from the famed Calvert Cliffs of Maryland. Just acquired these yesterday from a trusted collector and friend. I'm building a plaque revealing the evolution of C. megalodon and one of these will be right next to the Meg.

  20. Calvert cliffs 10/6/17
